Abstract: Being strategic at facilitating change in the quality of accommodations employed on behalf of students with learning disabilities means focusing on aspects that can be changed (teacher-specific variables) rather than those that cannot or are more difficult to change (social reality variables). This article provides a critical analysis of these variables and focuses on principles, theory, and supporting research for a triadic, synergistic model focusing on strategic approaches for making professional knowledge accessible, development of quality accommodations, benchmarks and related assessment systems, and strategies for implementing incremental change, and how these serve as the basis for the development of Makes Sense Accommodations software, the Quality Accommodations Inventory software, and the Step–Wise Incremental Change Strategy.
